Barci’s Buddies Makes 1,000 Friends in Northumberland

By Jeff Ball

Rockets extend reach in the community thanks to Nando’s.

A link up between a national restaurant chain and the 2017 RFL Club of the Year has proven to be a huge success.

Cramlington Rockets announced a link up with Nando’s Cramlington earlier this year and the creation of a brand-new programme called Barci’s buddies.

Named after the Nando’s mascot, the Rockets have partnered with eight local primary schools to encourage healthy living and a positive lifestyle, delivered by Rockets Community, it’s schools-based community arm.

Taking place over the course of a six-week programme in school, upon completion, all participants were offered an interactive, behind-the-scenes workshop at Nando’s Cramlington and were invited to attend the Rockets’ popular summer rugby camp for free.

Steven Beaty, Rockets community manager, said: “We love working with Nando’s Cramlington. It is so rewarding to work with a company that shares the same family values and ethos.

It’s fantastic to be able to engage with so many local children and it is fantastic that a national restaurant chain is so keen to support its local community.”
